Organized by: Carrie On
EVENT DATE Apr 30, 2016
In Memory of Carrie Mae Rakowski
To benefit her beautiful daughters, Maddie & Annabelle
Carrie Mae Rakowski was the youngest of 3, a single mother of 2 and a friend to so many… She was 41 years young when she died on April 15, 2015. Carrie’s life was not without struggle or hardship, just like the rest of us, but Carrie put everyone else’s needs before her own, especially those of her two girls Maddie Norkus, 12 and Annabelle Norkus, 10. Carrie grew up in the Bethel, CT with her mom, dad, older brother and sister. She was the “baby” of the family and she was everyone’s favorite. She always had a smile on her face, was that person that would drop anything to help a friend or stranger, and a mother that devoted her life to her girls. Carrie’s life ended way too soon and so many people have been left with broken hearts. Maddie and Annabelle must now grow up without their mom, but will live their lives with the same compassion, energy and spirit that Carrie instilled in them.
Carrie’s family and friends have decided to organize a memorial gala to honor and celebrate Carrie’s life, and all proceeds from the event will go directly to her girls, Maddie and Annabelle. The event is currently in the planning stages, and is going to be held in April 2016. Once we finalize details, additional information will be forthcoming, including the exact date, time and cost to attend.
In addition to the memorial gala, we are also going to sell t-shirts and magnets, with all proceeds going directly to Maddie and Annabelle. T-shirts will be ready for pre-order soon, with initial deliveries in October!!!
Although it can’t bring Carrie back, we hope that the money we raise will help Maddie and Annabelle financially, as well as lift all of our spirits as we come together as one to celebrate and honor our daughter, sister, mother and friend…Carrie Rakowski.
KEEP CALM and CARRIE ON
